It has been suggested to us hy an intelligent gentleman from the Western part of the State, to estimate. Irom such data as we adduced yes terday to sho a the superior capacity of the ca ‘ ital to bear the trade of the Ohio Valley, the ; practicability of transporting the Cannel coal of Kanawha to the Tide-water markets. Assuming the tolls and freight together to ' be one cent per ton pfcr mile, which is more , than the present charges on the Erie canal. , and the average distance over which the coal would be brought to be 400 miles, the cost of transporting one ton to Richmond would be $4. The Cannel coal would readily bring 35 cents * per bushel in any of the Eastern ci’ies; and 33 cent* per bushel, making a ton of 2000 lbs., its value would be $11,55. Taking $4, the cost of transportation, from this sum, the collier would have $7,55 per ton to pay the expense of min ing. It is evident that there would he a large 1 margin for profit. We have no! a doubt that if ihe canal were completed, the Cannel coal trade through the centre of the Slate would be come a most important business, audit would tend almost as much as any other branch ot our internal commerce to make Norfolk a great exporting and importing cits : for the ocean stea mers would he drawn to Hampton Roads to procure their coals.— Rich.

Thurston, the iate delegate m Congress, from Oregon Territory, died about 2 o’clock this morning on the pas sage up Irom Panama to San Francisco. He complained of illness at times on the passage from New York to ( hagres, and also during his stay in Panama. There was nothing how ever, to cause apprehension of serious sickness until ti»e morning ol the !>th inst., when it was evident that his condition was becoming criti cal. From that time he continued to sink until he died. His disease was dysentery. His remains have been placed in a coffin, and are to be interred in Acapulco, which place we hope to reach early to-morrow morning. 1 regret to add, that Senator Gwyn who is a passenger on the California, is now lying seri ously though not alariningl) ill* April loth.— Dr. Gwyn has had a comforta ble night and is considerably better. k'rogresa of our Railroads. ll will not be very long before we shall wit ness a great change in the interior travel of the State.

In an action for false imprisonment brought by the plaintiff, a sailor on hoard the steamship I Oregon, against the defendant who was master, Judge Lych <»f the Marine court, has given tor the plaintiff $100 with costs. 1 lie vessel sailed from New York in December 1849 1 and after touching at several ports arrived in the hay of San Francisco, in March, 1*50.— It appears bv the evidence that the plaintiff | worked a great part of the voyage 20 hour* out of 24, doing duty at coaling in addition to i seamen’s duty. No difficulty occurred on board until on arriving in the bay or San Francisco. A ter coming to anchor at Saucelito, the plain t ff, with eight other of the sailors, expressed their determination to do no more duty on board. The Judge decides that for this, a high act of insubordination, the captain would have been justified in inflicting ihe most severe punish ment within the lim U of his authority on those who had signed the ship’s articles, to compel them to return to their duty. Hut in this case the plaintiff had not signed the arti cles and the Judge held that the Captain must have known that without shipping articles, plaintiff was not bound to him, and he held the ; Captain, therefoie, liable in exemplary dam ages.
